I love to paint! My watercolor style is expressionistic, far more than realistic. For me, it's not enough to simply reproduce what I see - there are cameras for that. As an artist, I like to reach deep into my subject to capture its essence, the thing that makes it unique. And as a teacher, I encourage students to do the same thing - to look beyond the obvious, to have the courage to find their own expression.
Building on the basics of form, color and composition, I will help students combine individual experiences, historical events, and personal feelings into unique visual creations. As an art history instructor, I can demonstrate how artists used their art to respond to the times and portray their personal feelings. As a graphic designer, I can guide students in the creation of artwork that incorporates sequences and proportion.
My goal is to provide a memorable, enjoyable learning experience for students, no matter what age they might be. I look forward to bringing my enthusiasm and artistic skills into the classroom, meeting the students where they are and taking them on a wonderful artistic journey of self-awareness, revelation and understanding.
